Burger King Pays $85,000 in Teen Worker Sexual Harassment Case
A Clemmons North Carolina Burger King will pay $85,000 to Kathleen Joyner, a teenage employee, who was subject to unwanted touching, sexual advances and requests for sexual favors from the store’s general manager. When Joyner complained about the behavior to assistant managers, they did nothing. As part of the sexual harassment settlement, Burger King will provide sexual harassment training to its supervisors and post its sexual harassment policy in the store. The policy will give employees specific information about how they can file complaints with management.
